The Triangle Trust 1949 Fund is inviting applications from charity organisations for projects that support carers, community arts and education disability, older people, poverty, integration and rehabilitation.
Successful projects will either maintain an open, inclusive society or promote integration (or reintegration) of individuals or groups into society.
In general, priority is given to:
• smaller charities
• charities which serve a locality or region of the UK, rather than national charities
• causes which find it more difficult to raise funds from the general public
• activities where the Trust's financial contribution will have an identifiable impact
• new activities, provided there is evidence of these being sustainable in the longer term if they demonstrate success in meeting a need
Grants are normally awarded in the range of £1,000 to £10,000, with the majority of grants around £4,000 to £5,000. Trustees either make one-off grants, or offer funding for up to 3 years, sometimes on a tapering basis. In the case of multi-year funding, an annual report is required to confirm funding for the second and third years.
Grants are not made for activities which promote the advancement of religion, nor for medical research or animal welfare.
